Major road improvements taking place in Precinct 3
Restriping of major thoroughfares

In an effort to increase safety for motorists and pedestrians traveling on Woodlands Parkway and its intersecting arteries, the Precinct 3 Commissioner's Office is restriping and painting Woodlands Parkway, including skips, medians, crosswalks and stop bars, from Grogan's Mill Road to FM 2978. This effort includes reflectors on the pavement. The Commissioner's Office recently completed the re-striping of Grogan's Mill Road/Sawdust Road from I-45 to Research Forest Drive.
Shoulder repair work

A contractor for Precinct 3 is performing maintenance on road shoulders in a handful of areas, covering roughly 7,343 square yards in new shoulder work. The shoulder work includes but is not limited to:


  • West Panther Creek between Woodlands Parkway and Lake Woodlands
  • Interfaith Way
  • Fairmeade Bend Drive
  • Split Rock Road
  • Greenridge Forest
  • Wedgewood Forest
  • Falling Star Road
  • Pinyon Pine Drive
  • Sunlit Forest Drive
Curb repairs

A main focus of the Precinct 3 office during the last quarter of 2019 was to repair the numerous broken curbs throughout the Precinct. A broken curb can present a number of potential safety hazards so we work to repair them as quickly as possible. See a broken curb? Click submit a work order just below to report it!

Traffic update for Rayford Access along south side of UPRR overpass.

As of Saturday, Nov. 9, all eastbound Rayford Road traffic shifted to the UPRR overpass:

  • Eastbound Rayford Road motorists accessing businesses and the Sienna Vista residential community along the UPRR bridge are redirected to southbound Geneva Drive, westbound Spring Hills Drive and northbound Lazy Lane back to the Rayford access road.

  • Motorists leaving those businesses and community who want to head east on Rayford Road also are being redirected to southbound Lazy Lane, eastbound Spring Hills Drive and northbound Geneva Drive to get back to Rayford Road at the intersection with Geneva Drive.

  • Westbound motorists still can access those businesses and community by taking a right on Abbey Boulevard on the west side of the UPRR overpass.

  • Motorists leaving those businesses and community also will continue to use Abbey and turn right on Rayford Road to head west toward Interstate 45.

Crews are working diligently to complete the Rayford Access Road and final lanes of the overpass to get it open to motorists as soon as possible.
Rayford Road project highlights
  • The contractor now is working to get the final lanes of the bridge open. Once the bridge is complete, there will be three lanes in each direction. They are performing dirt work on the west end of the bridge and forming up steel in order to prepare to pour concrete on the east end of the bridge.
  • The traffic signal contractor is working to remove the temporary signals at all locations as well as getting power to the new signals.

  • The contractor is working to complete the final pavement striping/markings, including the medians, stop bars and skips, from east of Rayford Bend to Aldine Westfield. The tabs and buttons will be removed when the permanent striping is placed on the road.

  • The new medians and controlled access left-turn lanes have been poured from Rayford Bend to just east of Aldine Westfield Road.

  • Crews are working to get the new lanes ready between Brookchase Drive and Fox Run Boulevard. The final layer of asphalt should be laid in this section before the end of the year.

  • Between Fox Run and the Grand Parkway, crews are working to get the black base down so they can lay the final layer of asphalt. There are just a few small sections where black base is still needed.

  • Once the final layer of asphalt is down east of Fox Run, traffic will be shifted so the contractor can install drainage pipes on the westbound side of the road.
Alternating Lane Closures as Needed:

  • Eastbound and westbound temporary lane closures will occur Monday through Saturday, as needed, from Richards Road to the Grand Parkway for the duration of the project.

Thank you for your patience while construction crews continue to work as quickly and safely as possible. We recognize that construction can cause inconveniences, and we appreciate your understanding during this process. Please follow all road signs, pay attention to barriers and watch for crew members in the right of way.

Plan ahead, stay alert and drive safely!

Precinct 3 Employee Feature:

Matt Bickley
Superintendent, Residential Recycling and Household Hazardous Waste Facility.
Residents who frequent the Precinct 3 Residential Recycling and Household Hazardous Waste Facility are very familiar with the smiling face of Superintendent Matt Bickley.

Bickley first began working for Montgomery County nearly 12 years ago after a career in the private sector working for a solid waste and recycling company.

"I was looking for a stable job that would also help the community," Bickley said.

His expertise, leadership skills and positive attitude provided him the opportunity to become the head of his department after just five years with the county.

Bickley credits much of his success at the recycling and HHW facility to his incredible seven-person team as well as many of the safety measures Commissioner Noack has implemented during his time in office.

"Ever since Commissioner Noack has taken office, everything has gotten better," Bickley said. "The job is safer, more efficient and the morale is 100 percent better."

Bickley, a lifelong resident of Montgomery County, graduated from Conroe High School in 1995. He now resides in Willis with his 12-year-old son Bryce.
If you happen to visit the facility in the near future or ever have any questions, feel free to give the recycling facility a call at 281-367-S AVE and ask for Matt! For more information on the Precinct 3 Recycling Facility visit http://www.precinct3.org/recycling/
